197X Smith Corona Super Sterling Serial # 6SS-905477 197X Smith Corona Super Sterling typewriter, Serial # 6SS-905477 Jason Macdermott's 197X Smith Corona Super Sterling typewriter. 2019-04-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jason Macdermott: 197X Smith Corona Super Sterling Serial # 6SS-905477 This has a higher serial number than any other Super Sterling I have seen in the DB or elsewhere. I suspect it is 1973 or later, as a result. It is in great working order - I just don't know why anyone put that big piece of tape across the back of it?! I believe this one would have been made in Canada, and someday I hope to figure out how to get that tape off without damaging the decals underneath, and I can confirm its place of manufacture. Great to type on, creates great text on the page - I just wish it wasn't so loud.
